Aston Villa will welcome Liverpool at Villa Park on Tuesday night as they focus on grinding out a good result in front of their home supporters. The Villans managed to secure an impressive 3-1 win over Burnley last Saturday which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this midweek clash in the Premier League.

Steven Gerrard will once again opt for a 4-3-1-2 formation and could make one change to his first XI for this game. Marvelous Nakamba could play from the start while Calum Chambers drops to the bench.

Defence

Emiliano Martinez will operate in between the sticks for the Villans after shipping in one goal versus Burnley in his last league appearance. Ezri Konsa could get the nod to function alongside Tyrone Mings at the centre of Gerrard’s defence as they look to keep things tidy at the back during the 90 minutes.

Matty Cash is expected to keep his place at right-back while Lucas Digne fills in on the other side as the left-back. Gerrard could ask both of them to be more defensive than usual so that they can restrict the opposition from creating too many chances from the wide areas.

Calum Chambers will offer cover for the defensive positions on the bench.

Midfield

The Villans’ midfield could be comprised of Douglas Luiz, Marvelous Nakamba and John McGinn as they look to stop Liverpool from creating too many chances in midweek.

Philippe Coutinho will be given the freedom to express himself in the opponent’s half as he looks to engineer some decent opportunities for others around him.

Ashley Young and Carney Chukwuemeka will have to be content with a place on the bench as they wait for their chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if needed.

Attack

Danny Ings and Ollie Watkins will lead the line for the Villans up top. Both of them managed to get their names on the scoresheet versus the Clarets. Hence, they will be eager to produce a good display collectively versus the Reds this Tuesday night.
